APRIL WRAP UP // I legit had no energy to read because my insomnia took over this month and I turned into a zombie 😫 (sorry)

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m bringing you a shorter wrap up thatn I’d like but April ended up being a crzy busy month and I didn’t read anywhere near as much as I was hoping to. I had some uni assessments and some serious insomnia problems so honestly April was a tired blur for me, but I managed to somehow read 9 things throughout the month, so I can still scrounge up a wrap up for you all!

Also, just a quick question/side note. How do you all deal with feeling like you aren’t reading enough? I’ve been dealing with this for years, but over the last couple of months it’s really hit me hard, especially since I literally run a book blog, and I don’t really know how to deal with the pressure that I’m putting on myself. I know that I’m a slow reader with a short attention span but for whatever reason I still expect myself to read 15+ books every month and still get everything else in my life done. So, do you also put these pressures on yourself? And how do you deal with it, if you do?

*Also, another side note. I mentioned my insomnia in the title and I think I’ve mentioned it before on here but, I just want to quickly stress that I don’t want to see any comments about how if I’m an insomniac why don’t I just read when I’m not sleeping? That’s really not how it works with me. I had some serious insomnia flare ups in April to the point where I was going through 48+ hour episodes without any sleep (while also going to uni + doing assessments) and really I was a zombie for most of the month to the point where I couldn’t hold coversations or walk straight most of the time, so yeah… I just wanted to put that out there. ❀

Which of my Goodreads friends do I read most similarly to?

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going through my Goodreads because I recently saw Ally do this very same post on her blog (which you can see here) and I LOVED the whole idea (I’m lowkey annoyed I didn’t think of it first tbh) so here we are. I don’t spend very much time on Goodreads at the moment, mostly just using it to log what I’m reading, but I do occasionally like to stalk my friends’ goodreads pages so I’m really rght at home doing this post. πŸ˜‚

THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER *SPOILER* THOUGHTS // marvel finally perfected queerbaiting… and now DISNEY is teaching US about racism… lol okay (but honestly it was good tho)

Hi friends, welcome back to my blog! I think that for the rest of the year I’m going to try out a new reviewing format for screen reviews and try episode breakdown reviews for some shows and I’m kicking it off with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier which just aired it’s finale on Disney+, so let me know if you’d like to see more of these in the future!

Overall, I did really enjoy the show which shocked the hell out of me as I wasn’t going to watch it originally, but I absolutely fell in love with Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson) and Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes) and honestly the entire rest of the cast too and I can’t wait to see them again in the future of the MCU!

Be prepared, this is a heavy show that deals with a lot of different topics and themes, and on top that a lot of choices were made my the writers so I have THOUGHTS, a lot of thoughts. This really would be easier in video format but I only run my blog, so you just get a long-form blog post where I go into each episode and a couple of things that stood out to me for each. Grab a snack and a drink and enjoy!

Let me know in the comments what you thought of the show and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the points I talked about! And let me know if you want to see more posts like this in the future!

HI friends, welcome back to my blog!

I’m really curious to know what your eenneagram types are and what your favourite movies are! Also, can you guess my enneagram number?

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m giving you all a quick update on my reading this past week or so!
